I was saddened to hear of the passing last month of a dear old friend, renowned medium, Ronald Hearn. Ronald was a kind and loving man with a tremendous gift. He was a natural psychic and medium who gave me invaluable readings over the course of many years. His accuracy was phenomenal and he was well respected in the spiritual community. He will be sorely missed.

We have this ability too, but while we are encased in physical bodies and self-limiting beliefs about physical laws and linear time, we often forget to use our ability to see beyond these things.

Developing Your Yogic Powers to Make the World a Better Place
Anyone who casually skims the verses of The Yoga Sutra, the third century root text available in nearly every yoga studio, bumps into a most perplexing fact. The third chapter on Mystical Powers describes specific causes for supernormal abilities like mind reading, invisibility, and flying. So what exactly are the causes for superpowers? And how can we develop them within ourselves to make the world a better place?
